The island of Cape Clear, Ireland's southernmost inhabited island, 3 miles long by 1 mile wide, lies 8 miles off the coast of West Cork. If you are looking for a wonderful and truly unique Irish experience, make sure to pay Cape Clear Youth Hostel a visit!
It really is a beautiful island deeply immersed in the Irish language and culture and you can, with prior arrangement, book to learn the language.
The island is also a centre for watersports including snorkelling, Kayaking, and fishing. The island is rich in archaeology and tours can be arranged. Whale, dolphin and seal watching trips are often available and you can sometimes see these wonderful creatures on the ferry trip to the island.
